I finished my Coachella. It is not blocked yet, but I don't think blocking will change it too much. Please excuse the shiny face. Sometimes I overclean.

It was fast and easy and I used 4 balls of Berroco suede, which I really like a lot. People say they hate man-made yarns, but some are so great that it's no sacrifice to give the sheep a break. Smiley
I think it's on the large side. Also, while I really like the drape in the front, from the side looks a little weird and I don't know if there is a way around that with this design. I am pretty sure that once I finish nursing and the boobs go back to their smallish selves this top will not look so great, but for now, yipee!

I agree it looks great!! Especially the cowl neck.

I am knitting one too but I find it is too short in the back. Do you have that problem?

Yours turned out really nice on you. I tried the pattern, but ended up with a cowl that drooped down to about my belly button. Need bigger boobs maybe (or another child - as that was the only time I actually had any Grin).

Thanks everybody Kiss

Murphy 88 how far are you in knitting this? I must say it REALLY looks different on and off. I think mine is also a little longer in the front, but that's ok. If you are worried, I recommend having someone measure your back to see how long the top actually needs to be. Also, if you are knitting this in a different yarn than what the pattern calls for, you may want to check your gauge. If the yarn you are using needs more rows to the inch, you will have to recalculate for the increases/decreases, or at least add some rows to get the needed length.
Good luck!
